Teaching Staff German

German is far more than the language of Schiller and Goethe: more than 100 million people grow up with German as their mother tongue. German is the most widely-spoken mother tongue in the European Union and is one of the ten most important languages in the world. In addition to Switzerland, Germany, Austria and the Principality of Liechtenstein, German is also spoken in other countries. While many French terms once characterised day to day language in Switzerland, more and more English words have been finding their way into spoken usage in recent years.

Our experienced native speaker teachers assist you in your learning with great enthusiasm. They not only help you to improve your language skills but they also help you to familiarize yourself with German culture.

Teaching Staff Englisch

English should be part of every educational package. Whether it's business or the internet - it will be a lot easier with good English skills. English is the first foreign language taught in many schools and is an official language of most international organisations.

Anyone who keeps their ears open when travelling in a variety of English-speaking regions will soon realise that there are significant local differences. As English developed into a world language, countries including the USA, Australia, Canada, India and many states in Africa have developed their own individual vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar.

Our experienced native speaker teachers assist you in your learning with great enthusiasm. They not only help you to improve your language skills but they also help you to familiarize yourself with the culture of the English-speaking world.

Teaching Staff Italian

Italian is a romance language from the Indo-Germanic family of languages. Around 70 million people list Italian as their mother tongue, mainly from the Italian peninsula, southern Switzerland, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. As an individual language with a large number of dialects, Italian, like the other romance languages, is derived directly from Latin, as spoken by the Romans and the peoples assimilated under their empire. Of the main romance languages, Italian is most similar to Latin.

Our experienced native speaker teachers assist you in your learning with great enthusiasm. They not only help you to improve your language skills but they also help you to familiarize yourself with Italian culture.

Teaching Staff Spanish

Spanish is a world language. It is listed as mother tongue by around 400 million people. The majority of them live in South and Central America and in Spain. Around 45 million Spanish-speakers live in the USA. This puts the USA in second place worldwide after Mexico but ahead of Colombia and Spain. Today, in addition to Spain, the territory where Spanish is spoken encompasses Latin America and the Caribbean states.

The Castellano dialect is the historic basis for modern Spanish, with the result that the Spanish spoken in Spain is often known as Castellano. Spanish-speaking colonialists spread the language to the Canary Islands, the Antilles, the Philippines, North America, the majority of South America and coastal regions of Africa. On the Iberian peninsula, the area in which Spanish is spoken covers the majority of the political area. However, there are three regions in which Spanish is not the major language. Galicia in the northwest, the Basque country in the north and Catalonia on the eastern coast.

Our experienced native speaker teachers assist you in your learning with great enthusiasm. They not only help you to improve your language skills but they also help you to familiarize yourself with Spanish culture.
